Cultivate a love of cooking in your home or classroom with Stir It Up!

Stir It Up! was created especially for young blind children to get started in the kitchen! We all love to eat and we all need to know how to prepare food - blind children are no exception!

Cooking is a multi-sensory experience involving taste, touch, smell, and hearing - all modes of perception that blind children can use to prepare food. Dozens of recipes from popular children's cookbooks and cooking blogs have been tested, tasted, accepted (or rejected), and modified for young blind chefs.

The left side of the page includes adaptive cooking techniques, and the right side contains simple instructions for young blind cooks. The print/braille book format allows everyone in the family to cook from the same book.
